I could never understand gazpacho. It just seemed like people were eating salsa but calling it cold soup, yeah that makes it okay then. Well I finally caved and had it one day and I have been hooked. It just screams summer to me.
I made I big batch to bring to the Couples meetup for our Shakespeare in the Park picnic. For one thing it was fun to watch Shakespeare’s Comedy of Errors but it was also great to meet new people and have great food. Who knew that you could have a conversation about Extra Virgin Coconut Oil? Well I have to find some and give it a try.
1 English Cucumber, Diced
1 red/orange pepper, diced
1 green pepper, diced
1 red onion, diced
2 large tomatos, diced or 1 pint of grape tomatos diced
1 1/2 cups of corn, fresh or frozen
2 tablespoons minced garlic
1 quart, 14 oz of tomato juice (very large can) *
1/2 cup red wine vinegar
1/4 cup of extra virgin olive oil
Juice of 1 lime
Salt and Pepper
Dice all vegetables and add to tomato juice. Add in red wine vinegar, olive oil, and lime juice. Add hot sauce, salt and pepper to taste. Enjoy.
*I try to use low sodium so that I can adjust the salt myself
